Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959)

Sir Alfred Munnings spent his formative years in East Anglia where he grew up on the family mill.

His artistic talents were encouraged and at the age of 21 his paintings had been accepted by the Royal Academy who were later to elect him as their President.

Even the loss of his right eye in his 20s did not deter him and Sir Alfred Munnings went on to be one of the most talented sporting artists of our time.
